16oz can at home. Definitely a confusing name -- anyone who sees the word "Oak" on a bottle of FW is going to assume it’s oak aged, not named after "Paso Robles". But, having said that, this is still delicious. It’s exactly what you’d want from an Oktoberfest beer -- sweet, malty, a little dark, a little complex, and satiating. Good stuff.

Light orange with a white head. Sweet toasted grain, light earthy hops, mild but sharp bitterness. Finish has more of the faintly caramel malts with a bit of a snap right at the end. Solid. AirForceHops (8037) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2016
16 oz. can. 1st thing, don’t use oak, it it is not used. Once I got around the fact that this was not aged in oak, I realized it still is a very enjoyable fall seasonal. Aroma is toasted grain, bready, mild musty basement. MattH (923) - California, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Flavor has some noble hops to balance out the Vienna malts. Body is light but also made for drinking in large doses. Pretty nicely balanced. I don’t like the appearance of fall seasonals at the beer store. Mostly because it means summer is over but aside from that ... this beer is drinking really well and I could drink it in pretty large doses right now. That means something to me.
Can. Flavor is sweet malt like the description, with a little apple-like fruitiness as well. Highly carbonated. GenDV138 (7899) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2016
16 oz can poured into a tulip. Canned on 8/22/2016. Clear golden yellow with 1-2 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, malt, honey. Tastes of caramel, malt, biscuit, light floral. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty solid.

From a tallbory. Pours a light lager blonde. No real aroma. Mouthfeel was very light. Taste was skunky and nasty. No flavor whatsoever. This was a very bad beer. Just no redeeming value at all. And I doubt I got a "bad can". radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Tall can into pils glass, bubbly clear golden-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of biscuity malt sweetness and faint citrusy hops. Taste adds more graininess and tad fruitiness. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with tad grassy finish. On the lighter side of octoberfest/marzens, refreshing with limited depth. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2016
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Poured a nice amber color with a small white head. Aroma was light lemon, sweet malts. Light oak, woody notes. Pleasant, light oak, sweet. Light malts. Tasty. dlovell2 (2381) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2016
Excited to try this one after searching for a couple of years. Pours golden with a white fluffy head. Biscuit malt aroma with herbal hops. Flavor is dry biscuit malt up front with crisp hops and herbal yeastiness.
